Pergolas made of bricks
Brick arbors are always massive, warm and solid. They never hide them somewhere deep in the garden - on the contrary, they make them the central and semantic element of the whole landscape design. And they approach the question of designing such a gazebo as slowly and thoroughly, as well as to the building itself. And over time, the brick gazebo always becomes the pride of the garden and the outlet of the whole family!
In fact, a brick gazebo is a real miniature house, its smaller image, in which they certainly put their understanding of comfort and coziness. But it is not at all necessary that the brick gazebo be deaf and compact, of the very standard design that has snapped us since Soviet times. No, today incredibly beautiful small architectural forms are built from bricks, combining this material with natural stone, wood, metal and even organic glass. And especially luxurious are the forged openwork elements between massive brick pillars, which are always out of fashion.
When choosing a project or a sketch of a brick gazebo for yourself, think carefully about such moments: which bricks you will use, whether the walls will retain heat, and with what materials you are going to combine them.
So, if you are not constrained by budgetary frameworks, then pay attention to a stylish black brick with white filling, which always looks very stylish. Decorative types of bricks, such as clinker or facing, are also good for gazebo. Although plain red also always looks amazing!
The only exception is the old home brick, from which modern summer residents often build arbors. Such, of course, is better to hide under a decorative "fur coat" from a siding and similar finishing. Also for a brick gazebo you will need a good foundation and a reliable roof that will protect this hydrophobic material from destruction.Recent entries In April, I process roses so that no pests encroach on my beauties

The most reliable and strong brick arbors are built in order to install a brazier inside. After all, the brick remarkably retains heat inside and does not allow, thanks to this, the heat from the furnace to affect nearby plants that do not tolerate such temperature fluctuations. On the other hand, brick walls keep heat well, and in wet weather you will enjoy not only fragrant barbecue or homemade, just baked bread, but also a pleasant atmosphere inside.
In addition, a brick gazebo is easy to build in almost any style of architecture: postmodernism, which harmoniously combines natural curls with strict geometric lines, in the Norwegian style with a separate open terrace, in Canada, using dark glass or polycarbonate instead of solid walls, and even in Russian adding more wooden elements from a fresh log house and decorative accessories.
Quite often in brick gazebos, the barbecue makes only one wall deaf, closing the hottest part of the stove, and they try to leave the rest open for an overview of the beauties of the surrounding nature. Unless, of course, there is something to contemplate. Indeed, sometimes it’s better to really close the gazebo completely, preserving the inner comfort and silence, than to make vacationers look at the monotonous neighbor’s fences. That is why in this case, modern landscape designers go to tricks, planting tall bushes around such an arbor, creating the appearance of dense greenery surrounding the arbor.

Particularly like solid, solid bricks from a strong half of humanity. Therefore, you will probably find more brick arbors on the glossy pages of landscape design magazines precisely in the male concept, when you need to realize the arbor in the Swedish, hunting or brutal style. And already openwork weightless designs can be installed at the opposite end of the garden - and no style conflict!
